Is a used Mercedes GLC a good car?

Of course, there are some negative aspects to the GLC that buyers should be aware of. The GLC is a premium SUV, so it is more expensive than some other models in its class. The GLC is also a complex vehicle, so maintenance costs can be higher than some alternatives.

Overall, the Mercedes GLC is a great option for those looking for a used luxury SUV. It offers a comfortable ride, plenty of power, lots of kit, and a stylish design. However, it is important to be aware of the higher price tag and maintenance costs associated with this vehicle.

What to look for when buying a second hand Mercedes GLC

The Mercedes GLC is a relatively reliable SUV, but it has been known to have some problems.

One of the most common issues is ‘crabbing’, which is a problem that occurs when the wheels are misaligned on the axle. Dealers should have already fixed this, but be aware that you might have to pay to fix the issue on some older cars. It’s particularly apparent when full steering lock is applied, as the car almost feels like it’s skipping.

There’s another issue where the steering wheel vibrates for up to 30 seconds after hitting a bump or pothole. This is an odd problem relating to the electric power steering. Mercedes issues a fix, so if the car you’re looking at has this problem it can be fixed by a software update at a dealer.

Finally, some GLCs had transmission problems where the car would noticeably jolt when changing gears. It was most common when the driver was braking to come to a stop, but this is another software fix that shouldn’t cause too much problem. With both of these issues, if the owner has neglected to fix them it might point to them ignoring other problems, too.

Mercedes GLC FAQs
